The Regional Development Australia Committee program provides a network of 55 committees of community leaders, working to strengthen Australia's regions and build stronger communities. They achieve this by enhancing economic development opportunities and fostering effective communication between communities, business and all three spheres of government.

The Australian Government is continuing the Regional Development Australia Committee program, providing $74.3 million for the period 2017–18 to 2020–21. Current funding agreements have been extended until 31 December 2017.

Key tasks for Regional Development Australia Committees include maintaining three to five year regional plans and advising on critical issues affecting economic development, as well as priority activities to drive economic development in their regions.

Regional Development Australia Committees also assist local community stakeholders to develop project proposals, identify appropriate funding sources and promote Australian Government programs.
